Innovation At Its Best – A Technology Beyond Perfection!admin
We live in the world of choices. We like things to be according to our taste. Of course, in the 21st century we have gotten used to the presence of modern technology and all the comforts it affords. It’s hard to believe, especially now, that there are certain areas where technology hasn’t caught up yet. Take the example of shoes. An ubiquitous item today, at the time of its invention customization wasn’t an option. But, today can you even imagine yourself buying a shoe without trying it on first to ensure that it fits perfectly? Of course not, unless you are buying it online but
that’s a completely different story. You would know that one size shoes can’t fit every feet. Even if the feet are of the same size, they differ in width and shape which makes checking the shoe’s fit a necessity before buying. Because of this very reason, over 25% of shoes bought online are returned as there is no way to ascertain the fit in spite of selecting the right size.
If while buying a shoe you take so much care to ensure that you get a proper fit, what happens
when it’s time to change someone’s knee for example?
Advances in medical science and technology have played a huge role in the progress of mankind.Patients today have the advantage of procedures and medicines which seemed
impossible just a couple of decades ago.
Although advanced methods to ensure that patients get as close a fit as possible exists, but are they reliable or feasible, money as well as time wise?
Kne3Wiz, bringing together customization and accuracy
A complete 3d solution, kne3wiz is an advanced pre-operative system designed to overcome the problems faced by existing TKR procedures like Patient Specific Instrumentation Surgery, Robotic Surgery and Computer Navigational Surgery. Based on each patient’s CT scan data, Kne3Wiz’s intelligent and sophisticated algorithm develops a detailed 3D bone model to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of the procedure. The system also uses the 3d bone model
to calculate the proper size and position of implant and uses that data to auto-select the first choice of implant from all available implant companies. Using 3d models of the selected implant and the bone, the system determines the best position of the implant and assists the surgeon in delivering unmatched precision.
Tackling the two main problems associated with TKR, KNE3WIZ helps in finding the most optimal position and size of the right implant. This is more or less because of the 3D capabilities of the system. Once, the patient undergoes a pre-op CT scan, the DICOM files are loaded onto a dedicated system to develop a highly accurate bone model, accurate up to 1mm. The registration process on a CT scan is very simple and precise and is done with the help of 3
axis views: Coronal, Sagittal & Axial to ensure maximum precision and reproducibility in the shortest timespan.
- 3d technology to enable the surgeon to make the best decision as per the specific anatomy of each patient.
- Patient gets an implant according to his specific bone shape and size.
- Saves time and cost for the patient compared to other TKR surgeries
- Superior performance for potentially higher success rates
- Higher patient satisfaction
- Reduces the time required for the surgery, thus there are less chances of infection.
